The Town council have run a competition in conjunction with their lights switch on, for local businesses to take part in a best dressed window challenge.

Many of the shops in Alfreton chose to take part and it was a very difficult decision for the judge to make.

Wendy Comins of South Normanton Area Food Bank, the Town Mayors chosen charity, has kindly chosen the winner after visiting each shop one afternoon. ‘It was not an easy job because each one was beautifully decorated, many in a style in keeping with the shop itself. I chose ‘Pierce of Art’ on Central Road. The display reminded me of an old fashioned Christmas with stockings hanging on the fireplace, a blazing fire and presents around the tree’

Well done to the staff at Pierce of Art; Lesley, Elizabeth, Jess, Lucy, Tom and Abbey, they will be presented with their prize by the Town Mayor, Councillor Mary Kerry next week.

Members and staff from Alfreton Town Council will be assisting South Normanton Foodbank at their annual three-day food collection in the Tesco store Alfreton. South Normanton Foodbank, who operate from Alfreton House each Wednesday afternoon, is the Mayor’s chosen charity for 2018/19.

Town Mayor, Councillor Mary Kerry, was keen to support a local cause and wanted to not only donate funds but also time which is so undervalued and precious in today’s society.
